Get the most of SMS messaging in greeting for the New Year

Many of us will surely text many if not all of our friends, greeting them a happy new year. An SMS message will cost us P1.00. If we greet 100.00, we will be spending P100.00 (not counting those that are sent twice--network bug). Well this is the perfect time that we avail of those promos. What I will share is from Globe and Smart networks only.

Port Forwarding in Edimax BR-6204WLG wireless router


It's been a few days since I started using the Edimax BR-6204WLG wireless router. Features were great. I got the computers connected to the Internet with very less effort. I got my laptop connected wirelessly, and I got the security of the router tightened so that my neighbors won't be able to connect unless they had my permission. There was one problem though: PORT FORWARDING. I just can't get it to work. The setup was fairly simple. I specified the IP address of the local computer that serves as my web server, and specified port 80. I then tried to access it using the public ip address but I get a page load error: the server is taking too long to respond. I'm using Apache web server. I thought it was the firewall I had so I disabled it and tried to access the webserver again but with no luck. I then tried a different web server which was Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS). Dang! it still didn't work. I added this local ip to the router's demilitarized zone and hell it still didn't work. I know I'm missing something here because when I try to ping the public ip, the local ip responds. It's a good thing I got quite some time to figure this out.
